The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers will be doing battle in Lincoln, Nebraska tonight.

The two programs are among only eight in the country with 800 or more wins. Nebraska is fourth with 841 and the Buckeyes have been victorious 834 times.

Nebraska is 4-1, 0-1 in the Big Ten and ranked #14 and 15 in the latest Associated Press and USA Today polls.

The Cornhuskers lost their first game of the season last Saturday night at #7 Wisconsin, 48-17.

The Huskers started the season with wins over Chattanooga (40-7), Fresno State (42-29), Washington (51-38) and at Wyoming (38-14).

As a team Nebraska leads the nation in kickoff returns at 30.5 yards a return and ranks ninth in rushing, racking up just under 250 yards per game.

Ameer Abdullah is the nation’s best return man at 35.1 yards per kick return and the 18th with 12.0 yards per punt return.

Running back Rex Burkhead and quarterback Taylor Martinez rank second and fourth in rushing in the Big Ten with 103.2 and 96.4 yards per game, respectively.

Bo Pelini, a graduate of Ohio State in 1990, is in his fourth season at Nebraska as the head coach with a 34-13 overall record. He has led the Cornhuskers to three straight bowl games: Gator (2008) and Holiday Bowls (2009, 2010).

Pelini was a four-year letterwinner as a defensive back for the Buckeyes under Earle Bruce and John Cooper from 1987 to 1990.

Pelini started in the OSU secondary his final two seasons, was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and was a co-captain as a senior. Pelini received the “Bo Rein Award” as a senior, given to the teams’ most inspirational player. Pelini graduated with a degree in business administration in 1990.

Tonight’s game will mark the third time Pelini has coached against his alma mater. In 1991, the Youngstown, Ohio native was a graduate assistant for an Iowa team that beat OSU, 16-9, in Columbus. After taking the Nebraska head job in December of 2007, Pelini completed his role as defensive coordinator at LSU, helping to guide the Tigers to a 38-24 win over OSU in the BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans.


* Nebraska and Ohio State are meeting for just the third time and the first time in Lincoln. The Buckeyes own a 2-0 edge with a pair of wins in Columbus. Sixth-ranked Ohio State beat Nebraska, 28-20, in 1955 and the #8 Buckeyes beat Nebraska, 34-7, in 1956. The Cornhuskers has played every other Big Ten school more recently than Ohio State.

* Saturday’s game will be the fifth game in Nebraska history involving two teams with 800 all-time wins. Nebraska’s previous games between 800-win teams were three against Texas (2007, 2009, and 2010) and a 2010 game against Oklahoma.

Nebraska has two upcoming games this season against 800-win teams, November 12 at Penn State and November 19 at Michigan. Nebraska reached 800 wins during the 2006 season and has 841 wins all-time.

WAC welcomes Texas-Arlington as 10th member

The Western Athletic Conference has a new member from the Dallas area.

The conference lost Texas Christian University of Ft. Worth and Southern Methodist University from Dallas a few years ago, but now has added UTA which is from the southern part of the city, Arlington.

WAC officials have been interested in UTA for awhile and both parties clicked from the beginning and the board of regents for the University of Texas system voted to accept the invitation to join.

After the upcoming 2011-2012 season, the WAC will be losing Fresno State, Hawaii and Nevada. But for the 2012-2013 season, the WAC will see its membership go back to ten with the additions of Seattle, Denver, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio and UTA.

Texas-Arlington will be jumping from the Southland Conference and has been looking to improve the school’s image by going to a bigger conference.

Only seven of the 10 WAC schools have football teams and UTA does not. The school is looking into possibly adding a football program. It could play its games in the new Cowboys Stadium which sits very close to its campus. The Mavericks shut down their football program in 1985.

The TCU football program will be joining a conference that will give them an automatic bid to any BCS Bowl Game.

The Horned Frogs will be moving to the Big East Conference in 2012. They won’t have to be in any controversies of whether they belong in a BCS bowl or not. The mission is simple, win your league and they’ll be guaranteed a spot in the upper-echelon bowl games.

The Big East Conference currently has eight football teams and has one of six automatic BCS bids.

Currently, TCU is third in the Bowl Championship Series standings, the highest ranking for any non-automatic qualifying team. They’re in line for a chance to play for the national championship if Auburn or Oregon loses this weekend. The Frogs are probably looking at playing in the Rose Bowl if Auburn or Oregon both win.

TCU’s departure adds more shuffling for the Mountain West Conference. Boise State is leaving in 2011, Utah is bolting and BYU is going independent. But they’ll be picking up Fresno State and Nevada in 2012.

The Horned Frogs have won 25 straight regular-season games, and 38 of 41 overall. Their only losses in that span have been at Oklahoma and Utah and in the Fiesta Bowl to Boise State.

With TCU moving all of its sports programs to the Big East, the league gets even more crowded with a 17-team basketball league which will probably be split in divisions.

The Big East is the fourth conference for since the Southwest Conference split up after 1995. The decided against joining the Big 12 and joined the Western Athletic Conference instead. They’ve also been part of the Conference USA.
